On the other hand, tho, when you're dealing with Bassman RI's, or the Blues
DeVille, ideally it shouldn't, but you also have to consider the fact that
unlike a real Bassman or Super Reverb, Fender cut a ton of corners to make
the price cheaper and the amps more profitable, and one area they skimped on
was in the cabinetry. Why? Real Bassmans and Super Reverbs are finger
jointed, and the reissues as well as the Blues DeVilles are NOT, so as far
as I'm concerned, those are gonna be a helluva lot more fragile that the
real deals.
